Today in 'wait, what?' — Mahira Khan's cigarette replaced by chocolate shake in a Pakistani cafe ad

So.

You thought Baba Ramdev was the king of promotions and the Patanjali franchise could make anything sell?

Well think again, because we present you with this —

Unless you've been living under a rock, you must be well aware of the entire controversy surrounding Ranbir Kapoor and that Pakistani actor wearing a "backless white dress, smoking a cigarette" and overall just being completely unsanskaari.

Karachi-based Cafe Liquiteria, inspired heavily by Alok Nath (of Hindu traditions fame), recently decided to take matters into their own hands.

Cafe Liquiteria had the downright genius brainwave of replacing the cigarette that Khan was seen smoking in the original photographs with a much healthier funnier option — The Monster Shake.

Not only did Cafe Liquiteria manage to cash in on the latest trend that has set the internet on fire, but they also managed to increase Khan's life-span by eight minutes, along with finally putting a stop to all the slut-shaming that the actor has been subjected to (Because u r woman, how u can smoke? With penis-having personWearing dress above your knees? Hai Tauba!)

Unsurprisingly, the cafe's publicity gimmick was met with some severe backlash by the Tweeple, mostly criticising the eating joint (because apparently not all publicity is good publicity).

For Khan however, the entire fiasco just adds insult to injury, opening her up to be the butt of further jokes — because her entire act was just so despicable in the first place! (How can a woman smoke and go out with a person belonging to the male species and wear short clothes all in one night!?!)

Alas, Cafe Liquiteria is the hero that Mahira Khan deserves, but (probably) not the one she needs right now.

Here's the original picture of the notorious Mahira Khan with the innocent-because-he's-a-man Ranbir Kapoor sharing two cancer sticks together.
